Event-related brain potentials as a window to children&apos;s language processing
The present paper gives an overview of our recent research on the neurocognition of language acquisition. Our research aims to gain a more detailed understanding of the developmental stages of the language acquisition process and its underlying brain mechanisms. Here, we utilize the method of event-related brain potentials, which has revealed specific electrophysiological indices for various aspects of language processing in adults. These electrophysiological parameters can serve as templates to define the hallmarks of language acquisition. The research presented demonstrates that the method of event-related brain potentials is a powerful tool to investigate and monitor early stages of language acquisition and provides further insights into the neural correlates of language processing in infants and children.
